    I have now started to work on realistically realizing rain.I have developed rain tires that give a realistic grip and RELAXATION_LENGTH so that the car feels just like my car in wet conditions. I made a tutorial for wet track textures some time ago. I managed to realistically integrate the windscreen wipers of Kunos, as a three-volume system: single, slow, fast, that you can use in-game, but the demo video will not be released until Thursday, I can not do it before. I have managed to switch on the light of the vehicle for ever.And I have managed to use a modification of the VisorX app to put transparent rainy textures on the display that change every frame, like a movie.

    Even if that sounds pretty confused now, that should only be a preview.

    Here are two demo videos for my rain tire mod:


    The rain is still added here with Vegas Pro, but I promise to implement the ingame via the overlay app as well.



    It will definitely rain in Assetto Corsa.

    I dont made this Wet Mod for the Nordschleife, but i changed the Grip back to the normal Grip and used my tyre mod for the Wet Tyre Grip Simulation, now i can get Tyresmoke as well, which looks very realistic on a wet road.

    The texture changes in the example only with 1Hz instead of 30, so you can see it better, also I have to first extract the 30 * 60 frames from the Rain Greensceen video and convert them with Photoshop batch processing into transparent png. It still takes some time. These were just sample textures that I had on the PC, and they were not transparent enough, so the dark interior absorbs the rain. I just wanted to demonstrate that I do not tell nonsense.

    Demonstration of the Wimpers, use just the single-mode in my wet conversion of Autopolis.

    Have no idea if this is going to lead to believable results, but damn, this is some hard work :). I am not a fan of rain in games, but good luck with this project. Will be interesting to see how far it can go.

    Wipermodes Demonstration: This works because i basically renamed the whiper animation in lights.ksanim
    and wrote a Glovepie script that periodically presses the button for the light.

    This is pure Ingame Footage. I played with my Real Traffic AI.

    Fun Fact:
    My first car was a 110 hp Opel Astra H, similar to the blue Astra that keeps track of me all the time, what a coincidence.

    Unfortunately, Toyota has designed the Stock AE86 understeering when it rains, because the springs are all very progressive, the power of the handbrake and engine are not enough to get it to drift. My real car is always a tail spin in the rain, very pleasant to handle as the countersteer but at the slightest gas shock in the curve and the omega drifts with spinning wheels. And he has only 170hp.

    Now I'm working on an animated rain overlay texture that also produces raindrops on the windshield, similar to Forza 7.

    Man, so much work; you might want to wait until the 21st, in case they announce AC2 with rain :D

    Since I did not like the selection of greenscreen rain effects of Youtube, I take a look at Unity. Now I can at least adjust the number of drops, speed, transposition vectors myself and synchronize the drops on the glass with my windshield wiper.

    light drizzle:

    0-1min no windshield wipers
    1-2min slow
    2-3 fast

    To AC2:

    I do not believe that there is night and rain. But even if, I'm doing this because it's fun, I'm having new experiences and I want to show how far modding can go.

    Looking good, although it seems a bit too windy making it look more like snow. I think rain should fall harder and a bit straighter.

    Good work though, I hope we can try this out soon!

    But that was everything for this weekend, I have two exams next week (higher math and digital systems because I'm studying electromobility) and I have to learn something there as well. Next week I will continue to work.
    I'm happy with what I've done so far.
